Yesterday I told you about a recently proposed piece of legislation. Today I’m asking for your help.

If you enjoy buying cosmetics and other personal care products from your local farmer’s market or a small business in your area (or if you’ve purchased from my site), please consider signing this petition to oppose the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010 as it is written. If passed as written, the bill will force many small companies out of business at a time when we really need as many jobs (and potential employers) as possible. If you know others who enjoy handmade soap or lip balm, too, please let them know about the petition!
